It's for my finals.
Her father states she "hath not yet seen the change of fourteen years" in 1. Even in Shakespeare's England, most women were at least 21 before they married and had children.
It's not clear how old Romeo is, but either he's also a stupid little kid who needs to be slapped, or he's a child molester, and neither one is a good thing. When I was in middle school or high school, around the time we read this book, I remember a classmate saying in class that when her and her boyfriends' eyes met across the quad, they just knew they were meant to be together forever.
How convenient that her soulmate happened to be an immensely popular and good-looking football player, and his soulmate happened to be a gorgeous cheerleader!
That's not love at first sight, that's lust at first sight.
If they were really lucky, maybe as time went on they would also happen to "click" very well, that lust would develop into love it didn'tand they would end up together forever they didn't. But if they saw each other at a school dance, decided they were "like, totally in love," and then the next day decided to run off and get married, we shouldn't encourage that as a romantic love story, we should slap the hell out of them both to wake them up to reality.
For what it's worth, my cynicism doesn't come from any bitterness towards life or love. I met my wife when we were 17, and we've now been together almost 10 years, married for a little over 2. Fortunately for me, she turned out to be awesome.

If we were 13 at the time, that would be even worse. Enlightened adults injecting this into our youth as a classic love story for the generations, providing further support for their angst-filled false ideas of love and marriage, is probably worst of all.William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet contains a diverse cast of characters.
